  1. Can we get an “unread” folder?

    You could make the app better by allowing an Unread folder or tab so that you can easily get to the messages you have not yet read please

  7. Smart suggestion for moving email to folders

    The only reason Outlook is now not my first choice of app is like many people I sort my emails into folders. Another app I use, Spark actually learns what folder you move messages into then suggesting the folder saving time scrolling down through tons of folders. Add that feature and Outlook will rule the world!

  8. Unread email

    I have email rules which mean that unread emails go directly into a folder. There should be an ‘unread email’ feature from all folders not just the inbox

  11. Add “always BCC”

    It would be great to have a feature that would allow you to always add yourself as a BCC on emails sent.

  12. Ability to hide message previews

    Forcing us to view message previews in a folder takes away from valuable smart phone screen real estate. Please give us the option to enable or disable message previews in all folders, especially the inbox.

  13. Classic look

    Please bring back the old look of Outlook! The Inbox bar is way too thick and blue. The slider button for focused and other is too round and puffy.

    I like the simple, clean and professional look of the previous look.

  14. Attach files from iCloud Drive

    Please add the option to add files from iCloud Drive, currently Dropbox, Google Drive and recent attachments are there but not iCloud which is frustrating.

  17. Deleted folder

    Please put a feature where you can just one click and empty your deleted items (like in the junk mail folder) as it would be so much quicker than have to delete it then confirm etc.......

    Thanks

  19. Categories/colour calendar events

    It would be ideal to see calendar events as colours, like you’re able in the full version

  20. Font style and size

    Hi Team,

    I had already raised this once. It would really nice to have an option to choose the font style and size for the email body. This option is available in MS Outlook desktop version.

    Presently, the emails go out in various fonts- times new roman (12). Calibri (12) etc.

    Request you to consider introducing this option at the earliest.
